In a joint statement at the end of the talks, both sides reaffirmed the need to de-escalate tensions and pledge to refrain from further violence.

Meanwhile, during the meeting in Jordan, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his National Security Minister Itamar Ben Gavir said in a statement that two Israeli civilians were killed in a Palestinian terrorist attack in the northern part of the West Bank.
